Server Error in '/' Application. The request failed with HTTP status

  Asked By: Nagendra    Date: Dec 26    Category: MOSS    Views: 5480

I have 3 project web sites on medium size SharePoint 2007 farm. On
each of them the default.aspx page is displaying this error:
Server Error in '/' Application.
The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of
the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more
information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.Net.WebException: The request failed with
HTTP status 401: Unauthorized.

I can hit other pages in the SharePoint site.

I cannot connect to the Project Server with a client.

The web front end is displaying this error from the server
application log file:

Please check with your permission levels with in the
sharepoint site .I meant to say whether are you adminstrator of the site or
full control over the site .

Answer #2    Answered By: Claire May     Answered On: Dec 26

I am a full control administer on the
SharePoint Portal and on the Project Site, and within the Project
administration settings.

The sites  were all working for about 2 months, and then mysteriously
started failing with this error.

The Web server  Application log error  indicates the service account
for the SSP application  pool:

Trust level: Full
Application Virtual Path: /
Application Path: C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\tmss\
Machine name: %frontendwebserver%

Process information:
Process ID: 2692
Process name: w3wp.exe
Account name: %applicationPoolAcct%

Is it possible that one of your service accounts on the farm may in
fact have a password that expired? That would account why life was
good for 2 months then it died. I am thinking of farm accounts, search
accounts, etc.

Check to make sure the application  pools are running correctly and that
those accounts have the necessary permissions

Additionally, where there any funky or custom web  parts added to the default
page or perhaps the master.default page? You may have to open the default
page in maintenance mode and close the offending webpart or remove any
custom code. It could also be a file permission issue (i.e.
inpub/wwwroot/virtualdirectories/wss/80/) or an IIS specific setting.

Check the IIS logs in c:\windows\system32\logfiles\<id number of your moss
site> and see what it says.
